Susan Richman, 5/11/2010

Editor's Note from Susan Richman: Many homeschool students try out for scholarships to recognize their gifts and talents -- and it's always heart-warming to hear of a wonderful win like this one! Our congratulations to Daniel English for this major accomplishment. We hope his award will inspire other young homeschool musicians:

  Harrisville, Pa. (May 10, 2010) – Daniel English of Pittsburgh has been awarded a $4,500 scholarship from the Blackwood Theatre Organ Society. English was one of five Tri-State high school seniors awarded the 2010 scholarships, which totaled $20,000.


            The Blackwood Theater Organ Society is a not-for-profit organization created to encourage students to pursue instrumental music performance careers. Over the past ten years, the Society has awarded more than $126,000 in scholarships to high school seniors planning to pursue an instrumental music performance degree in college.

            English, who plays the piano, was awarded the scholarship following an audition at Heinz Hall on March 21. English, who is home-schooled, is an accomplished pianist, organist and composer. He also plays the saxophone and guitar, and has won awards for his poetry and creative writing. English also donates his time to play music at a local assisted-living facility.

            The other scholarship winners were Connor Fluharty, piano, of Avella High School in Avella, Pa.; Alexander Lee, violin, of Trinity High School in Washington, Pa.; Annick Odom, clarinet, of Morgantown High School in Morgantown, W.Va.; and Brant Roberts, marimba, of Southmoreland High School in Scottsdale, Pa.
